What
is AES encryption?**
**It is a webtool to encrypt
and decrypt text using AES encryption algorithm. You can chose
128, 192 or 256-bit long key size for encryption and decryption.
The result of the process is downloadable in a text file.**
**
How
to use AES encryption?**
**If you want to encrypt a
text put it in the white textarea above, set the key of the
encryption then push the Encrypt button.**
The result of the encryption will appear in base64 encoded to
prevent character encoding problems.
If you want to decrypt a text be sure it is in base64 encoded
and is encrypted with AES algorithm!
Put the encrypted text in the white textarea, set the key and
push the Decrypt button.
**
When
is helpful to use AES encryption?**
**When you want to encrypt a
confidential text into a decryptable format, for example when
you need to send sensitive data in e-mail.**
The decryption of the encrypted text it is possible only if you
know the right password.
**
What
is AES encryption?**
**AES (acronym of Advanced
Encryption Standard) is a symmetric encryption algorithm.**
The algorithm was developed by two Belgian cryptographer Joan
Daemen and Vincent Rijmen.
AES was designed to be efficient in both hardware and software,
and supports a block length of 128 bits and key lengths of 128,
192, and 256 bits.
**
How
secure is AES encryption algorithm?**
**AES encryption is used by
U.S. for securing sensitive but unclassified material, so we can
say it is enough secure.**
The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), also known by its
original name Rijndael is a specification for the encryption of
electronic data established by the U.S. National Institute of
Standards and Technology (NIST) in 2001.
AES is a subset of the Rijndael block cipher developed by two
Belgian cryptographers, Vincent Rijmen and Joan Daemen, who
submitted a proposal to NIST during the AES selection process.
Rijndael is a family of ciphers with different key and block
sizes.
AES became effective as a federal government standard on May 26,
2002, after approval by the Secretary of Commerce. AES is
included in the ISO/IEC 18033-3 standard. AES is available in
many different encryption packages, and is the first (and only)
publicly accessible cipher approved by the National Security
Agency (NSA) for top secret information when used in an NSA
approved cryptographic module. |
